MANILA, Philippines — A man was hurt after reportedly jumping onto the tracks of the Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1), disrupting service on Saturday morning.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) said in a statement that the 26-year-old male passenger jumped onto the southbound tracks of the LRT-1 Blumentritt Station as a train was approaching.


“The train operator was able to immediately apply the emergency brake when the passenger jumped on the tracks,” the DOTr said on Facebook.
